#19: Is Starting a Business Really for You?

Starting a business is a huge deal, whether you see your business taking off or not. After COVID-19, our society has seen a huge spike in people quitting their day jobs and starting side hustles or new business altogether. But just because society is heading in that direction doesn’t mean that starting a business is for everyone – and that’s okay! There are a few questions you can ponder over to decide if starting a business really is the right move for you. For me, entrepreneurship was in my blood. My dad was a full-time business owner and I started making money through baby-sitting when I was 10 years old. I even had a business idea in college but wasn’t focused enough to get it going. That’s okay though because City Girl Savings was meant for me. One question you can ask yourself to determine if starting a business is right for you is if there’s anything you’re skilled at or passionate about that can make you money. Another thing to do is get honest about your situation. Can you really handle starting a business right now? Just because a business may not be in the works right now doesn’t mean it won’t be a good option for you in the future!

Here’s a glance at this episode:

  • [01:30] My mom worked full-time in corporate America and my dad was a full-time business owner. Because of that, I saw the benefits of entrepreneurship at an early age. I also saw the stability that comes with a full-time job.
  • [03:00] Although I had a business idea before City Girl Savings, it never came to fruition. Things happened the way they were supposed to.
  • [03:54] I’m sharing 5 questions you can ask yourself to determine if starting a business is the right move for you…now or in the future.
  • [10:15] If you don’t want to start a business, that’s okay! Do what brings you the most joy and happiness, not what society pushes on you.
